U.S. Air Force researchers are currently in the midst of developing an autonomous aircraft, equipped with the capabilities of taking down a manned fighter jet in a battle of the skies.
Lt. Gen. Jack Shanahan, head of the Pentagon’s Joint Artificial Intelligence Center, said the Air Force Research Laboratory team is expanding the military’s horizons in the manufacture of aircrafts in comparison to the current ones.
The Air Force Research Laboratory team first began their endeavor back in 2018, hoping to display results in approximately 18 months. By first integrating machine learning technology into a less sophisticated plane such as the F-16, they can adjust whatever is needed and then pursue this into the more advanced models such as F-35 or F-22.
